Why, When, and How to Use Evaluation: Experts Speak Out
Heather B. Weiss, Priscilla M.D. Little
The fifth in this series of research briefs on evaluation in out-of-school time, this brief offers expert commentary on the implications of the first-year report of the national evaluation of the 21st Century Community Learning Centers program for future evaluation and research. It includes a methodological critique of that study, written by Deborah Vandell.
